What the heck happened to this page? It's stark blank!

Display glitches everywhere at the moment. The page is back now, but if it happens again here or elsewhere, try doing a null edit to fix it.

Machetes are just basically like really big, long knives, right? Is it technically true that machete=Big Friggin Knife?

These were deleted, presumably for not technically being machetes. I'd argue they're cloer to machetes than they are to ordinary knives, but what do people think?

  • Team Fortress 2 - The Sniper's melee weapon is a machete-like weapon (technically a Kukri, the Nepalese equivalent)
    • Which is also the Melee Weapon of Choice of the Gurkhas, the British Armed Forces' Badass Army of Nepalese auxiliaries. They've got a crossed pair of them on their insignia, just in case you'd forgotten to run away yet.

Yeah, someone launched another topic, Kukris Are Kool, and put that on there. You should check it out.

Whoa, was gonna say that sounds overly specific, but there's a lot of examples...

In a similar vein, Rena from Higurashi no Naku Koro ni doesn't use one either. Although it looks like one, it's actually a billhook.
